Lesson 10. Vector Masks, Paths, and Shapes > Stylizing and warping text

Stylizing and warping text

In keeping with the spirit of the tournament, you’ll distort the text so that it suggests a full moon. After you warp the text, you can continue to edit it with the Type tool, as needed. Before you begin, make sure that the “the full moon pro-am” text layer is still targeted.

1.
With the Type tool () selected in the toolbox, click the Create Warped Text button () on the tool options bar to open the Warp Text dialog box.

2.
In the Style pop-up menu, select Inflate and then click OK to close the dialog box, leaving the other settings at the default values.

3.
Drag the Type tool to select the words full and moon.

4.
In the Character palette or the tool options bar, select Bold as the font style.

5.
Double-click the word full to select it (but not the word moon).

6.
In the Color palette, select a bright yellow color by entering the following values: R=239, G=233, B=7.

7.
In the tool options bar, click the Commit Any Current Edits button () to deselect the text so that you can see the results.

8.
Choose File > Save.

When you select the Commit Any Current Edits button, you deselect the text. However, that doesn’t mean that the text has to be absolutely final. You can still reselect it later with the Type tool and make additional edits.
